A millennium ago in my childhood, my childhood friends and I often visited the pond by the church where I grew up, north of the arctic circle.
I was already interested in astronomy and my father bought me a small telescope, (40mm and 30x) at a local optician i a nearby town, which I used to watch the moon and the planets, but it was to small to see any kind of nebula.
Little did I know that I more than fifty years later, would find the same tiny creatures in the sky, that I back then found in the pond.
